    Hiya! I don't know if you are looking for ways to naturally color your soap, but Cherry Tree Scents has some awesome colors, not natural though.

    Valentine's Day FO List

    Thank you for the list. Very helpful indeed. That is something we figured we would do this time around, offer just a few scents rather than everything we had....just made Christmas hard to do! LOL

    Paying Yourself

    Uhmmm,,,, we have invested way more into the company over the last year than we have gotten. We still just reinvest what we do get, work on new product, perfect current recipes, buy new "shop" toys. One day we will make more than we spend and it will all be good. Then we can begin paying...

    Soap Pot?

    So..exactly what IS considered natural?

    Well, my two cents are this. I do M&P and I use one of the Natural Bases. I use EO's and retain the Natural aspect, but I also use FO's at customers request and therefore obtain the Nearly Natural tag. I am going to begin working on CP and am excited as I do feel that M&P is a little bit of...

    Valentines Day Scents?

    ok, so figure about 5 bucks for packaging (quickly searched for gable boxes at 39.45 for 100 count)....I'd think that your price is pretty close, but that is me. :) I always find it difficult to get a nice product at a price that customers are willing to pay. There is always someone who...

    Valentines Day Scents?

    Well, I don't know. I guess it depends. How are you packaging? A real basket, with that shredded paper stuff, plastic bag and bow? What I usually do, is take the cost of each individual product I am packaging, total it, reduce by a specific percentage and then add in the cost of packageing...

    Rebatch gone wrong?

    Well, I used a little less that half a cup of milk, then after that when it was ready to pour, I added a teaspoon of Coconut Oil and 4 drops of Lavender EO. Laundry soap, there is a good idea! :D
